Inspirational quotes on Freedom and free thought

Art by carl vilhelm holsoe

The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing
our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to
deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.
John Stewart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

If all mankind minus one were of one opinion, mankind would be
no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he
had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
John Stuart Mill

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too
much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
Thomas Jefferson

The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power
is the love of ourselves.
William Hazlitt
